The owner is friendly and helpful, it is isolated although the nearest town has everything and everyone I met was friendly.

The villa is an old building that used to house a restaurant and has been in the same family for years. There is masses of space and our party spread out everywhere. It was great that the 8 under 25s had their own space. Plenty of room, however for all 15 to eat in the very airy covered terrace by the kitchen. It has only been used for holiday rentals since this year. Giorgio is the most welcoming host. He is committed to ensuring you have a wonderful holiday. Nothing is too much trouble and he is very keen that you ask for whatever you need. It is quite a way away from Malaga but there is a very comfortable cheap bus several times a day from Almogia (20 minutes walk to the stop). Almogia itself has an adequate supermarket, and a couple of good bar/restaurants and a leisure centre. The views from the villa are stupendous and at night all you hear are the crickets. We saw lizards scampering up the walls and loved the swallows darting over the pool in the evenings as the sun went down. If you are used to up to the minute mod-cons/electronic everything you won't fit in to this place. There are lots of steps around the garden and the kitchen and bathrooms are a little basic. Overall though, the ambience and charm of the place and its owner make for a near perfect holiday!
